The latest Ashes of Creation dispatch from creative director Steven Sharif will no doubt put the minds of fans at ease. Sharif states within the letter that back in March, he directed the team to stop selling cosmetic items to fans due to the sudden worsening of the global pandemic situation. But now, everything is fine! Is it fine? Well, sales will resume in July regardless, so look back to selling cosmetic items for the game that’s still deep in testing.
In less mercantile news, the game will also be expanding its base of testers toward the end of July, allowing another tier of backers into the test to see how the game is shaping up. To quote the newsletter:
I am happy to announce that we will be expanding the testing group starting in August to include Leader of Men pack holders as we begin to ramp up the testing of Alpha One. Those of you who are Leader of Men pack holders will receive separate emails near the end of July with download links and instructions.
The team is also looking forward to moving into new offices even with delays caused by the aforementioned global pandemic, with August or September currently targeted for an actual move-in date. Take a peek at everything going on in the full newsletter.
